War may be beautiful on the historian’s page, and through the idealization of time and distance, but to the spectator or the actor it is divested of its charms, and becomes a reign of horrors and a civilized monstrosity. And yet it has its fascinations, as murder, journalism and the stage have theirs.– Junius Browne, war correspondent for the New York Herald, as he walked among the battlefield dead the day after the battle of Antietam. (from Civil War Times, February 2013, p.60)
